Camila travels from Buenos Aires to New York to attend an artistic residency and develop her new project: a Spanish translation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Upon her arrival, Camila soon realizes that her work is not enough to compensate for the loss of her friends and her boyfriend who she has left behind. A new path opens when she begins to receive a series of mysterious postcards from Danièle, a former resident.

Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1982, Matías Piñeiro graduated from Universidad del Cine, where he later worked as Professor of Filmmaking and Film History. In 2011 he moved to the United States to attend Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program. Piñeiro, who currently teaches Filmmaking at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, is now working on the development of a short film, Porcia, and a new feature film, Ariel –a CPH:LAB project based on William Shakespeare’s The Tempest that he co-directs with Galician filmmaker Lois Patiño. His last four films are part of a series devoted to the female roles in William Shakespeare’s comedies.
